Intelligence agencies are embracing secure data sharing and collaboration to smooth processes and provide users with one-stop shopping for services and communications, Defense Department officials said during the recent DOD Secure E-Business Summit in Arlington, Va.

Implementation of the Intelligence Community Systems Information Sharing initiative is in Phase 1 and will likely take several years to complete, Defense Intelligence Agency systems architect Mike Swindle said. In July, management staff will be briefed on where the project stands, and they will then decide how to proceed, he said.

'What this is going to do is set the tone for the intelligence community,' Swindle said. 'This is not just about technology. This is going to change our business processes.'
